Playing around: nautical baby quilt brainstorming

I’ve made quite a few greenish themed baby quilts over the last couple of years, so I’m ready for something new.  I’m thinking nautical themed.  Lots of blue and yellow and white and red.  Maybe some grey thrown in to balance things out.

I’m starting with a really neat fat quarter of fabric I bought while in Paris, at a quilting shop called Le Rouvray:

Moucheron #3 Marine

Isn’t it neat?  It’s called “moucheron”, as in “little flies”.

It reminds me a lot of the time we spend in New Brunswick visiting family.  Here are some pictures from previous trips:

Back to fabric!

I hunted around a bit on etsy and found this beautiful blue sailboat fabric:
